of the "huffington post." thanks for joining us. >> thank you formation me un. >> eliot: polling is more than picking up the phone, calling 12 random people and adding up who said what? >> increasingly, when i started in this business 25 years ago you could do something like that. you could get a scientifically random sample, a few reasonable steps to make it rigorous and not have to do a whole lot of waiting or adjustment afterwards. now there have been a combination of things. lower response rates the whole cell phone problem basically two-thirds of us have two kinds of phones. another third roughly have a cell phone only, and it's a whole lot harder to know what the odds are getting someone over one phone or another. pollsters are having to make a lot of assumptions one way or another about either about the demographics of who they interview or the mechanism that they use to select it. >> eliot: i want to break this down a little bit. the moment you talk about waiting some answers more than others you're putting into play an opportunity for the pollster to exercise discretion that may be correct o

. from "the huffington post," city lawmakers are scheduled to vote tuesday on an ordinance that would prohibit nudity in most public places, a blanket ban that represents an escalation of a two-year tiff between devoted group of men who strut their stuff through the gay district. that's not true. it is mostly straight people fighting for this. they're doing in the castro because they think it is a hip place to do it but it is heterosexuals fighting the most for the nudity policy. and a supervisor who represents the area. supervisor scott weiner's proposal -- yes scott weiner does not like nudity. i can't make fun of anybody's last name. >> of course not. >> john: fuglesang for huge apparatus. it would make it illegal for a person over the age of a to expose his or her genitals, perineum or anal region using any street, sidewalk or park plaza or while using public transit. the perineum? we can't even show that anymore or is it perineum? i tried to pronounce it as perineum but it ain't. you cannot show y

question is, there's been talk about the gender gap. the huffington post says basically that bump among women was the residual effect of the first debate. when you look at the split among unmarried women, the president is womping, which i believe is an official term. but he's leading by 25% among single women. it's married women where romney is ahead by ten points. i don't understand how any women can be in favor of a candidate like this. >> the question should always be which women, because women have never operated as a bloc. >> it is rather shocking that when given a multiple choice test, they throw away the pencil. >> the greatest quote ant this is ted kennedy versus mitt romney in 1994 in the debate, when kennedy said i'm the pro choice candidate, mitt romney is the multiple choice candidate. >> he nailed it. that is a clip that should be on loop. thank you for joining me this evening. >> thanks for having me on. >>> coming up, the fight for control over the senate. who is likely to hold on and who has absolutely no chance at all. and where does that missouri race stand right now?

contributor michael sikonis, and a.b. stott dard, social editor for the hill paper as well as the huffington post. sam stein with us. sam, let's start off with you. speaker boehner says he's open to tax revenue, also spending cuts. similar to the speaker boehner before some of the house republicans got ahold of him, and he basically pulled back on a deal struck with the president. >> yeah. i mean, this is a complicated thing for speaker boehner because he doesn't have a lot of chips here. obama can sit on his hands and not sign any extension of the bush tax cuts. so he's got a very difficult task ahead. i think he has less leverage than in the summer of 2011. he signaled very publicly yesterday he's open to revenue raisers. what that constitutes is anyone's guess. it could be a magic dynamic growth stuff, but he realized at this jeng tunction tur he doesn have a lot of chips to play. he has to go back to his caucus and sell it. >> let's see what he said on reaching out to congressional republicans. let's play it please. >> that door is open. it has been open. what we want to do is break that

, the president is reported by the huffington post to have said i am not going to budge. i said in 2010 that i am going to do this once and i meant it. the thing he did once, of course, was allowing a two year extension of bush tax rates for everyone, including top income earners. the president now wants to continue the bush tax rates for everyone except top income earners. such a bill passed the senate but is stuck in the house. if no such bill passes by end of the year, in january all the income tax rates will go back up to the clinton tax rates. so if republicans in the house succeed in preventing anything from happening this time, something will actually happen, and everyone's tax rates will go up. joining me, justin reuben and ezra klein. ezra, i want to start with you on something. justin was in the room with the president today, i am going to torture him in a second to get what the president said. we have what's being treated as breaking news tonight by some of the newspapers that the president's tax revenue target in going forward is 1.6 trillion. it is something he said before when he sa

to create a special committee. so why is mccain doing this? as "the huffington post" pointed out, in january, senator mccain will lose his top ranking seat due to term limits. the only ranking spot available to him next session will be on the affairs committee. the creation of a special committee would give mccain the opportunity to stay relevant and create more problems for the president of the united states who defeated him in 2008 to prove just how disconnected from reality this man is, mccain is now demanding u.n. ambassador susan rice go on television and apologize for the way she characterized the benghazi attacks. >> maybe she could start out by publically coming back on this show and say, i was wrong. i gave the wrong information on your show some several weeks ago. that might be a beginning. >> let's bring in katrina vanden heuvel. i just find that comment on sunday by john mccain outrageous. why is he attacking susan rice like that? >> there are a number of reasons. i think he's trying to stay relevant as you said. i think this is a political hit job against the president. that's w
